from the Victoria Daily Colonist, 24 Feb 1904, pg.5

The steamer 'Dolphin' on her arrival from the Sound yesterday brought the body of Mrs. S.E. Bolton, which was picked up on Port Angeles Spit. This was the body, the finding of which was reported yesterday when the remains had not even been identified. It has since been shown to be that of Mrs. S.E. Bolton, whose husband was awaiting the recovery of his wife's remains in this city. The body was found by two fishermen, Walter Patterson and Ed Noyes, who will be entitled to the reward of $300 offered by the bereaved husband. Mr. and Mrs. Bolton were returning from their honeymoon trip to San Francisco, and the readers of the Colonist will remember the tragic scene which was enacted when Mrs. Bolton went down before her husband's eyes. Strenuous effort on the part of his fellow passengers prevented him from jumping overboard to her and going to a watery grave with his newly wedded wife.
